I received this book for free from the author or publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I just could not help be roped in, from the moment I read the description. Whole family murdered is quite the attention grabber. Then Randall Silvis writes a magnificent picture perfect family man, leaving you shocked that this could be the scenario. So like the detective on the case, who just happens to know the family man/ author/accused murderer, I went on hoping for any other possible leads. The author gives plenty of possibilities to follow up on, many surprises, but it’s not looking good for the good guy. All evidence leads right to the family man. As we all know, looks can be deceiving.
This was great research and dedication to the story, by the author. Story plays out very well, leaving you hooked for the next page. The multiple leads the detective follows all have you curious about each of the characters role in the story playing out before you. Beautiful writing and reference to Edgar Allan Poe and other literary icons . Was very satisfied with the ending. Not at all what I was expecting. As the author writes a different version of the family man, his truths come out very flawed in appearance, leaves you concerned for a sinister revelation.
